New Years dream come true

New Years dream come true

Since 1999 I've had a dream that I would spend New Years Eve on the beach drinking wine out of the bottle with close friends. I've done the wild club scene, the house parties, and the fancy restaurants for New Years, and I've been looking for something more personal and intimate. Every year I've tried to make it happen. But inevitably it doesn't work out. I can't afford the trip, nobody can come with me, or other plans take priority. This year my dream of welcoming the New Year with a bottle of Chianti on the beach is finally becoming a reality. My fiance and I are taking a road trip for Christmas, and we're going to the Florida keys for New Years. I'm so excited! Photo Credit: Bnae on Fotothing

Hello Sleep, Where Are You?
August 13, 2009 at 12:03 pm 3
Like most people, I’m a pretty good sleeper, but whenever I’m stressed, it always affects my sleep. Over the last little while work has been quite intense and I’ve been putting in lots of time to make sure all my work is taken care of properly. When the nighttime comes I do some exercise, spend time with friends or my boyfriend, and then relax before going to bed. Usually, I’m asleep by 11 o’clock or midnight…but then at 230 in the morning I wake up again and can’t fall back asleep! I’ve tried everything: Counting sheep Imagining myself sitting on the beach watching the waves come to the shore Visualizing the even strokes of painting a cottage deck Breathing in one side of my nose and out the other But, what ends up happening is my little sheep wake up and start dancing around and kicking their legs up and having fun! The waves gain more energy and come crashing into the shore line. The even strokes of paint eventually become erratic patterns with multicoloured patches…and the funniest of all…..I discovered that I can’t breath out one side of my nose…literally one of my nostrils is broken, and no air comes in, or goes out!
